Join the Fight: Sign up to Dump the MTA Tax


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) payroll tax is a 34 cent tax for every $100 of payroll on every business, school, local government, nonprofit and hospital in Orange County and the entire MTA region.

Since its enactment in 2009, the payroll tax has cost Orange County thousands of jobs and its residents, most of whom never use the MTA’s services, millions of dollars.

As this is a tax on payroll, employers are essentially punished for hiring more people and paying better wages. During these difficult economic times, New York State should be encouraging job and wage growth, not the opposite.

Please sign the petition below today, to help deliver the message that Orange County is serious about repealing the MTA payroll tax.
